This is two of several that I own. This was the last style $10 gold coin made by the U.S. mint. In 1907 coins were minted at the start, without the motto "In God We Trust". On the reverse of this "1st year of issue" 1907 ten above (tail side with the eagle) in pic number two, you will notice that the motto was missing to the left of the eagle's breast. In the second coin example dated 1914, look at pic number four, you will see that motto located again, to the left of the reverse eagle's breast. The coins minted for this series starting in 1907 had examples of that year "without" the motto which were struck before the public outcry, and also coins dated 1907 that had the motto. All United States coins minted after this period "ALL" carry that famous motto. Even today...
